Tropical Queen by ching chou kuik

I hope everyone’s having a great week. So far mine is going great.

I have an art card for you this week here at Sweet PeaStamps (SPS). Of course it is from one of my favorite artist, ching chou kuik, and is titled Tropical Queen. You can find Tropical Queen in digi format, which is what I used on the project, or as a rubber stamp on Plate #248.

Tropical Queen was first colored with Copics, and added some glam with Spicas and a pearl pen. I then die cut the image with a deckled die. I added Gathered Twigs DI and mounted on cardstock.

Copics used:
Skin: BV0000, E000, 11, and R20
Hair: E41, 43, 47
R20, 22, 29
B93, 95, 97, 99
G82, 94, 99
Y32, 35, 38
YR61, 65, 68

This card has a lot of dimension to it. I love adding 3-D paint to my handmade embellishments. The die-cut flowers and butterfly were enhanced with metallic lime green.  For more information on this project, please visit my blog.
